Do you know a free open source wiki software that we can use?

I think I am liking the wiki now since I could place all the relevant info that I am doing that I could share with my co-worker at work?

Hi mark,

MediaWiki is the underlying software of Wikipedia. It is open source software licensed under the GPL. It is written in PHP and (I think) requires a MySQL database. It's fairly easy to set up, widely supported and straight forward to use.

Lots of Java wikis are listed in For a new project I'd go with JSPWiki, which has a nice feature set, and is actively developed. For heavy-duty stuff (high-end features, lots of customization in Java) I think XWiki is very interesting.
